CA travel advisory groups urge travel to U.S.
California has announced that it is expanding its travel advisory to cover the states borders with Mexico and the United States.
“We want to reiterate our longstanding commitment to our citizens in the U.A.E. and to the U of C,” said a letter from the California Public Safety Commission.
“The state is fully committed to ensuring the safety of our citizens and residents in all states.”
The letter from Caltrans was sent Friday to state agencies in California and New York.
The move is the latest in a series of policy changes to help curb the spread of the Zika virus in the United Kingdom.
A travel advisory was put in place by the British government to warn people to stay home on Friday.
In France, travel warnings were put in force in March to limit the spread and the country is also considering imposing similar travel restrictions.
There were no specific plans to impose travel advisories in Canada.
